The Hong Kong office of PRC firm DeHeng Law Offices has hired disputes lawyer Stan Cheung as a partner, the first lateral hire made by the firm after officially combining with Chungs Lawyers in March this year following their three-year association.

With a particular focus on cross-border disputes, Cheung represents clients in commercial disputes, including contractual disputes, shareholders’ disputes, banking/investment disputes and insolvency disputes, many of which are multi-jurisdictional. He also acts on instructions for enforcement of Mainland and foreign judgments, as well as arbitral awards.

Cheung also advises on and conducts internal investigations for financial institutions and multinationals, and represents institutional, corporate and individual clients in investigations brought by regulators such as the HKMA, SFC and HKEX.

Cheung joined DeHeng from UK law firm RPC, where he was a senior associate with the dispute resolution team in Hong Kong. He started his career in 2011 with the Hong Kong firm Wilkinson & Grist.

DeHeng Hong Kong now has 14 partners.
